Anna’s Hummingbird (male) | Colibri d’Anna | Calypte anna: Although I posted a photo of this hummingbird species a couple of days ago, they are such a great species that I wanted to post these new photos. I also wanted to show an interesting feature of this bird, namely the “shield” on its face, which can alternate from deep black to bright red/purple.
Taken on February 13, 2016 in Jericho Park, Vancouver (British Columbia), Canada with a handheld Nikon D5200 and AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR . Not baited, called in or set up.
